Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 24, 2014
Bill Hood, CEO of LED Lighting Inc. (http://www.ledlightinginc.com), will serve on the Leadership Advisory Board of a local nonprofit, Foundations College Prep, a public school serving students from grades 6-12 of Chicago’s Roseland community. The school is scheduled to open in September of 2014.
Foundations College Prep’s mission is to “empower youth to thrive in college and life by giving them access to innovative educators who teach them to think critically, live with honor, and strive for a better self and world.” Statistics show that out of 100 ninth graders in the Roseland community, more than half will drop out and only two will be college ready.
Hood will bring his business expertise to help define the school’s mission, establish priorities, create fundraising initiatives, and ensure that the school’s programs are implemented. Hood enjoys helping the local communities and is excited to begin a new journey with Foundations College Prep. He states, “After meeting members of the board, I’m thrilled to become a part of this organization and a community where long-term success is a primary goal. Their core values align with my personal outlook on building a successful career and living a healthy lifestyle.”
Foundations College Prep (http://foundationscollegeprep.org) strives to increase the productivity of time in school by integrating technology. Much emphasis is placed on learning through rotations between computer and teacher-guided stations. This college-like environment encourages individual time between students and teachers, ultimately, preparing students for sustainable success.
Foundations College Prep is a recipient of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and is supported by the New Generations Learning Challenges.
